The original REX vegetable peeler is a Swiss design classic
The REX vegetable peeler is great for peeling vegetables, fruits and even for slicing chocolate, and cheese. The peeler is suitable for right and left-handers. Also practical: thanks to the bright colours in which our REX peelers come in, there is no longer a tedious search in the cutlery drawer. This Swiss design classic remained unchanged and timeless since 1947, designed by Alfred Neweczerzal.
The ergonomic curved handle is made of recycled aluminum because sustainability is key for us. It is not only made in Switzerland, there is also a lot of craftmanship involved in the production process. The hardened stainless steel blade and potato eye remover on the side are very sharp and make it a perfect companion in your kitchen and a great kitchen utensil. The REX peels extremely thin and economically, so that the best is preserved.
We offer the vegetable peeler in a wide range of beautiful colours. In order to color aluminum, it has to be anodised. In the process, an oxide layer forms on the material, which is formed from the existing aluminum. As a result, the layer is fully integrated. The anodising protects the aluminum and makes it look beautiful for a long time.
Care instructions anodised aluminum
It is important to be careful when cleaning anodised aluminum. For this purpose, pH-neutral cleaning agents that do not affect the anodised material should be used. Not suitable for the dishwasher: The handle should not be cleaned in the dishwasher. The dishwasher's regeneration salt would attack the aluminum and destroy the color. What you can do is to remove the blade after using and clean it separately.

This is how the Rex peeler is still produced today. The movie is from 1987. The process of anodising is not included in this video because it is is a new method. But it's nice to see that there are products that are consistently good, without constant change, right?
